A jury of eight women and four men sentenced Lee Boyd Malvo to life in prison without parole Tuesday for his part in the three-week sniper spree that left 10 people dead in and around the nation's capital. Malvo was 17 when the shootings occurred. NPR's Tony Cox discusses the verdict with Richard Dieter, executive director of The Death Penalty Information Center, and Mychal Massie, nationally syndicated op-ed columnist with WorldNetDaily.Com.
